The Mitfords by Gail Louw
A one woman tour de force of 4 of the Mitford Sisters – Unity (Hitler’s friend), Diana (married to Oswald Mosley), Nancy (author of The Pursuit of Love and many others) and Jessica (dyed in the wool communist and social activist).
The Mitford Sisters lived much of their varied lives in the centre of the events that defined the 20th century.
Diana was married to Oswald Mosley and a lifelong fascist. Unity was a great close friend of Hitler’s. Jessica, was a dyed-in-the-wool communist. Deborah became Duchess of Devonshire. Nancy was a well-loved novelist.
Gail Louw’s astonishing one woman tour de force follows four of the sisters through world-changing events of the 20th century.
